BEA picked up by Oracle

After a lengthy and tempestuous courtship, Oracle is finally acquiring BEA for $8.5B, a healthy increase over the original $6.7B offer last October. It will be interesting to see what emerges on the BPM and SOA product front from the combined organization; some large acquisitions in the past, such as IBM acquiring FileNet, seem to have caused more confusion than clarity in the market.
